Title: The art songs of Jaime León: a textual and musical analysis
Author: Botero, Victoria Sofia
Date: 2011-08-26
Publisher: University of Missouri--Kansas City
Abstract: The thirty-six art songs of Colombian composer Jaime León (b. 1921) represent an important addition to the art song repertory. Chapter 1 introduces the topic and the literature on Jaime León and Latin American art song. Jaime León's biography forms Chapter 2, including his training as a pianist and conductor at The Juilliard School, his affiliations with Broadway musicals, the American Ballet Theatre, and the Orquesta Filarmónica de Bogotá, and his evolution as a song composer. To date this chapter represents the most comprehensive biography of Jaime León to appear in either Spanish or English. Biographical sketches of each of the poets that León set to music forms Chapter 3. Every León song is analyzed in Chapter 4 from a textual, melodic, harmonic, rhythmic and formal standpoint. Original translations of each poem into English accompanies the analyses. Edited portions of the author's interviews with Jaime León appear in the appendix.
